Seine River Cruise and Paris Canals Tour
Reviewed by: Rog, April 2015
This is a really great trip for those who want something different from the usual river cruises in Paris. We went on a quiet rainy day in March. The crew were friendly and fun. Having read other reviews we were prepared not to understand a word the commentator said but in fact, we had a fantastic time. There were only two non french speakers on board and he made an extra effort to translate clearly into English just for them. The cruise goes through many interesting features on the canal including a lifting bridge, two swing bridges, many locks and a tunnel. So maybe this cruise is more for those interested in the engineering side of waterways rather than sightseeing. Having read other reviews we knew not to expect tea or coffee on board so made sure we had eaten and drunk before boarding! We really enjoyed it!

A different view of Paris with some pretty scenes on the canals. Difficult to hear and understand the spoken English commentary.

This was beautiful on a hot September day. Then we walked back.
Don't miss this experience.

This was a very informative and scenic trip on the Seine and the canals of Paris. This is off the usual track for tourists making it all the more interesting especially if you are a history buff or want to see areas less frequented by tourists.

This was a great tour. My husband who is a mariner enjoyed it immensely. We saw some very picturesque sites and the locks were very interesting. The tour guide was very informative . Definitely a good buy for the low price.
